Dear Maisi and Chris and all reading this,
What a marvellously bright morning weather wise to day in this bit of the UK
However, like with many mornings I am really struggling to get going.
I am continually inventing reasons to get up and go out. Sometimes I feel really awful.
but some of the ruses I devise to trick myself into engaging with the day are fun.
Knitting is helping - I have had a go at a teddy bear. the head arms and legs look ok at this stage, but not enough of the same yarn for the tummy, I tried a lighter colour but it doesn't look right
Never made a teddy before.
Re the daffs. Are they like sun flowers, do they face the sun, follow the sun?
Re the turkey dinner, I have heard that turkey has tryptophan which is very good for helping to create serotonin in the brain.
Re birds of prey. sometimes we see birds of prey hovering over the motor way, I guess when they are over the tarmac it is easier for them to spot their prey.
In Africa I regularly saw a pair of sea eagles, over the compound. They had a nest close by. I think I might have taken some pictures.. will have to look them up on the hard drive.
That will be something nice to do.
Re the banana bread.
funnily enough, I brought some ripened bananas with a view to making banana bread, so snap.
I am using the bbc recipe donated by John Barrowman.
keep bumping along with the rest of us ... I will join you with bumping,
I know, it is so hard reading about peoples difficulties. For me life can be so exhausting... I like to help when I can, but I feel I need to leave space for other people, for their insight and perspectives too. Like you say, sometimes the forum is very quiet and people deal with their lives and challenges.
It is nice to come here and chat. It is nice that we laugh and share nice things.
p.s. I would like to know which way my daffodils would be facing if I had planted them but they are still in the sack from last year.
A classmate planted her daffodils in feb one year and they still grew and flowered.
